As a speaker and facilitator, I maintain the sensitive balance between sharing prepared material and being responsive to the needs and energy of the room. I believe in the genius of the group, and value the discoveries that come from reflection, questions and critical dialogue. I bring embodied practices into all learning spaces knowing that movement allows us to digest and retain new knowledge. Movement activities also build community, trust and accountability in the space creating a more fertile learning environment. It is with these foundational practices that I am able to successfully engage participants in rooms of all sizes - from just a few folks to hundreds. 

Think of one thing that you want to change about our world and about our social condition.

See it. Look right at it. Open your hand to receive it...

Because you are going to make the vision, that dream, the truth.
